Wolfpack Netters Defeat Stanton & Creighton

September 22, 2011 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

ELGIN — Long matches were the ‘norm’ for the Wolfpack netters last week as they posted victories over Creighton and Stanton.

Volleyball fans got all they wanted last week as the Wolfpack needed five games each to overcome Creighton and Stanton.

On Thursday night, playing at St. Boniface gymnasium, the Wolfpack and Bulldogs split the first four games.

In the decisive fifth game, the Wolfpack needed to get off to a quick start to seize momentum and they did. The Wolfpack won the match by the scores of 25-20, 23-25, 25-13, 22-25 and 15-7.

Lauren Selting gave the Wolfpack a 2 to 0 lead from the service line, aided by a net kill from Chelsi Mescher.
